Umweltschutztechnik by Förstner, Ulrich

"Environmental Engineering and Sciences at Springer would never have become so prominently visible without Förstner's contribution. The success of his book was unexpected for both the author as well as the publisher: 5 editions within 5 years, starting with this first edition in 1990. Later, Springer not only started a successful international series edited by Förstner and Salomons, but also introduced the publishing programme in Environmental Sciences as an interdisciplinary channel.“
